Neave is a Filipino Los Angeles-based illustrator and visual development artist currently attending California State University Northridge (BA- Animation 2022). They specialize in character design and environments using procreate and photoshop.
Heavily inspired by animated films such as "The Cat Returns" (2002), "Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse" (2018), and Netflix's animation anthology "Love Death+ Robots" (2019), Neave aspires to create and collaborate with many creatives to conceptualize timeless and fantastical works. They are an advocate for young LGBT+ artists pursuing careers within the animation industry in hopes of creating a more open and diverse work community.
In their spare time, they like to play with their loud but lovable chihuahua (?), attend anime conventions, and try every possible Earl Grey flavored foods.
"In loving memory of William "Bill" Asuro (1955-2020)
The first person who's ever taught me how to draw
and the parent who always did my arts and crafts projects for me as a grade-schooler cuz I was too confused and lazy.
Rest in Power, Dad. Love you always."
